Re: Does God ---- Do unto others?

Do unto others as you would have then do unto you. If you would not have them doing unto you, what is it about you that is not allowing it? If I have faith in God, then whatevr occurs is unto me. Even as I may have been done upon it is God that is doing what is unto me, as I have faith. It is the s...

Does God ---- Do unto others?

Does God ---- Do unto others? There are many instances in scriptures where God does not follow the golden rule. Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righte...

Re: What is the purpose of an everlasting punishment in hell

Respect must be earned. What a hypocritical self-serving and un-Xtian attitude. How is having someone earn respect self-serving? Do you expect respect without earning it? I do not. You want the respect and yet you demans that others meet 'your' conditions! Perhaps you 'feel' little respect is that ...

Re: What is the purpose of an everlasting punishment in hell

God has nothing to do with the bible. You assume the existence of a 'God', ok, I'll go along for the ride. Assuming a God, that God must necessarily have 'God-like characteristics', be One with God's definition, like us all. An apple is that which fits the definition of an apple, no? One of the mos...
